If there’s one area where the innovation in tensile roofing structure has been historic it is roofs. The plethora of design for tensile roofing is not just staggering but an engineering marvel. There are large number of buildings around the globe which have used this technique and continue using it to amazing effects. Just to brush up your memory, some of the examples most notables tensile roofing are The Millennium dome of London, Denver International Airport in USA, Canada Place etc.
The most striking feature of all this structures (and many others) has been their use of force of tension to create ornate designs of convex and concave fabric curvatures. The elasticity, strength and weather resistance are three important qualities to look for in materials to be used for fabrication of fabric for tensile roofing. Opaqueness and heat reflecting qualities if present will be a cherry on the cake.
